i was wondering on what tranny to look into. I need an auto transmission, but which one. i would like to run a redneck performance c4 transmission suitable to handle 650 hp (as they claim). i will be running a 351w, 400 rwhp. if i put a c4 into this will i have to change the length of the driveshaft?
if i do go with a c4 from redneck performance, i will get a full manual reverse valve body with a transbrake and a deep dish pan and a nice stall (3000-3500 based on my mods). but tahts will be about 1200 and i dont have that money right now, as i am working on a engine and rear end and all my suspension. maybe next summer, but until then what could i use?

If this is at all a street car I would go AOD. My Cornwell tool dealer has an old 32 IIRC ford with a modded 351w in front of a STOCK (freshly rebuilt, he rebuilds and works over AODs) AOD, the car has ran great for 15,000 miles and he's not the kind of guy with a light foot. He's pushing the limits of his tranny but it can be built up to withstand insane amounts of power. If this is going to be mainly a track car go with the C4, you won't need the OD band and you'll like the fact that the torque converter doesn't lock up in third gear. Good luck!
